  • The Process of a N00b- Janni's (n00by) MSFS Thread

    Thought I would make my own MSFS thread to post my process and fun (aka "I'm-an-idiot") stories- if anyone would like to add theirs, you'd be very welcome- that way, I don't feel all alone being new (and stupid) to Microsoft Flight Simulator (and so it has a bit of relevance to this forum- because my first posts won't be THAT relevant!)... anyway, here goes!

    ----------
    4:04 PM, Day one: Currently up to disc 3 in the installing process... DAMN this takes time It just hit 70% and asks me to stuff in disc 3... I should unpack my joystick around now...

    AAAAH!!! this is slow!

    EDIT:
    4:08 PM: is currently stuck at 81% while the D drive makes weird sounds... installing Paris.cab I knew the french files would mess this up


    4:09 PM: EDIT!!! Just rose to 82% but still makes funny noises weird thing...

    4:16: 90% woooo! not making stupid noises either

    4:19: 100%! Now, the fun starts...

    oh wait... "decompressing scenery files. Please wait. Currently extracting..." ... bloody %&/(!!


    4:23: All set up!! Will be back later
    ----------

    Do share stories

    Hmm, I would share a story...


    ...if I could even remember how it was when I first installed MSFS. Though I gotta admit that I have had a few tantrums when an addon, mostly AFCADs, wouldn't work out the way it should have done .

        6:58 PM: P!ssed off! Joystick doesn't work right no matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall... I definitely need better graphics

        I even managed to get the Rod flight instructor guy get mad at me

        I give up for today... new joystick (logitech attack 3 *drools*) should arrive tomorrow/the day after... and I will talk kaddy into teaching me when I come over from the 28th

            I appreciate that, Sam My laptop however won't run the thing at all (the scenery is all blocks and the instrument board is a black box ) so when i fly, I have to use my brother's computer... which IS better but not THAT good I think Kevin's computer is better graphic-wise... but when I'm in the UK and I get heaps of time to fly while kev's at work, I'll give you a shout, mate!

              Believe it or not he was the one who got into this whole aviation thing by coming round to my house and installing it for me and helping me the with the basics etc. That was like three years ago though and I don't think he's played FS properly since then so he probably won't be very interested

                As long as he can teach me, I don't care I wouldn't expect him to play or anything, as long as he can help me out just a little

                I do need something to do when he's working from like 4 AM to 9 PM
